“Not everyone can feel things as deeply as you. Most people, their feelings are … bland, tasteless. They’ll never understand what it’s like to read a poem and feel almost like they’re flying, or to see a bleeding fish and feel grief that shatters their heart. It’s not a weakness, Grey. It’s what I love about you most.” ― Juliann Garey, Too Bright to Hear Too Loud to See
Yesterday I turned 26.
I don’t know how time has flown so quickly. But here we are.
Last year, when I turned 25, I had a simple dinner with my parents and my dad bought me a royal magazine with Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary on the cover. He had heard about how I had been writing my royal blog during my job hunt.
And less than a year later from that day I received that magazine, well, 364 days to be exact, I met Crown Prince Frederik and Princess Mary at Hamburg City Hall, a few blocks from the office of my (not-so-new) job.
It was in that moment, standing in front of City Hall waiting for their arrival, that I decided life is all kinds of wild.
Because a lot can happen in 365 days.
I’m certainly excited to see what’s ahead for year 26.
That’s crudely put, but…
Why all this music?
“— Ernest Hemingway, from The Complete Short Stories”
I love this.
